BRYAN TALKS ON THE OUTLOOK.
Nebraslcan Sees Little Hope for Judge
St. Louis, July 5.William Jennings
Bryan arrived at the Jefferson hoi el
shortly before noon, a nd from the mo
ment that he set foot in the hotel he
was an exceedingly busy man, his
callers being so many that he found it
difficult to obtain time for meals.
On the subject of tlu- platform Mr.
Bryan was noncommittal. "I have
hea rd talk,'-' he said, "of a gold plank
In the. platform. I am opposed to such
thing and I will not stand for it."
Regarding the presidential candi
date s. Mr. Bryan said:
"After conferences with a number of
delegates from various sections I am
satisfied that the opposition to Judge
Parker is sufficient to make his nom
nation highly improbable, if not im
possible. There has been no concen
tration upon any anti-Parker candi
date, but, two arguments are having
weight with the delegates. Among
the radical Democrats the feeling is
that the party nulst not be surrendered
into the hands of Wall street. The
influences back of the Parker candi
dacy are so intimately associated with
the trusts and great corporations that
the Democratic party..could not appeal
to the masses. The party cannot af
ford to entrust its future to the men
who were responsible for the party's
defeat in Ifino."
The second argument, Mr. Bryan
said, was that Judge Parker could not
winhe was a weak candidate.
